Created by Circle of Life Theatre, Paradox A Cappella is a professional, San Francisco-based pop-rock vocal band of singers, both with and without disabilities, making music with just our voices and no other musical instruments. Why the name "Paradox," you ask? It's because... this shouldn't work, and yet it does. There exists no other vocal band anywhere in the world made of singers with and without disabilities, of such diverse ethnicity, with an age range from 20's to 50's, AND who get along so harmoniously and who make music as well as we do. Period.
WE DO NOT CAST DISABILITY; WE CAST TALENT, but we recognize and accommodate every "dis" (disability, disorder, disease) in any degree, so if an incredibly talented, solo-worthy singer has any "dis" in any degree... we will go to any length and do whatever it takes or costs to include that singer in our band. Currently, members of our band live with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, ADHD, Chronic Migraines, Glaucoma-Blindness, Severe Physical Injury, Spinal Fusion, Anxiety, Depression, Alopecia, and Skin Cancer. And yet, we can sing. We sing our hearts out! And... WE. WILL. ROCK. YOU.
Members: Fritz Lambandrake, Cliff Reilly, Nisha Cory Anand, Maria Morlino, Cephra Stuart, Heather O'Brien, Raquela, Grace Renaud
